A student called university police Monday night after her roommate's dad reportedly assaulted her, police reports stated.

Officers went to the Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., at about 9:20 p.m. where an officer met up with the student.

The student said she had not been getting along with her roommate lately. The student said her roommate's family was visiting for the weekend, reports stated.

According to reports, the student said the roommate's father asked to speak to her outside. When they went into the hallway, the student said the father accused her of being a slob and an argument started, reports stated.

The student said she went back into the room and picked up the phone to call her father when the roommate's father reportedly grabbed her wrist and told her to give him the phone, reports stated.

According to reports, the student pulled the phone away, and the father grabbed her wrist again and bent the bracelet she was wearing.

The student called police when the family left the building, reports stated.

Police were unable to contact the father, but they took pictures of the bent bracelet.

The student said she wanted to press charges for assault, reports stated.

A student was arrested Friday night after police saw her reportedly drinking at a fraternity party, reports stated.

Police were doing random identification checks at fraternity houses for underage drinking Friday night.

An officer was at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house, 1509 E. Second St., when he noticed Bridget Aitken, 19, of the 900 block of North Euclid Avenue, holding a beer and acting nervous, reports stated.

Police asked Aitken for identification and she showed the officer a stamp on her hand. The stamp was supposed to indicate that her identification was checked at the entrance of the fraternity and that she is old enough to drink, reports stated.

The officer asked Aitken for some proper identification, and police noticed an unopened can of beer in her purse when she went to get her driver license, reports stated.

Aitken gave the officer a New Jersey driver license and police ran a background check, reports stated.

While they were waiting for the information, Aitken said "What are you waiting for? Are you going to arrest me or what?" reports stated.

According to reports, when the officer asked Aitken if she was 21 years old, she said no. Aitken also admitted the driver license was fake, saying she used it just to get into the party, reports stated.

Police had Aitken remove the beer from her purse and dispose of it.

Aitken was cited on suspicion of minor in possession, possessing a fictitious driver license and misrepresentation of age to obtain alcohol.

Two men were arrested Saturday night after reportedly using illegal drugs, reports stated.

Officers found Steven Alexander, 19, and Kevin Lundbergh, 19, both of California, inside the apartment, reports stated.

When police entered the room they noticed Alexander was sitting on something. They asked him to stand up and noticed a small baggie containing pills with "007" printed on them, reports stated.

According to reports, Alexander said the pills were Tylenol and that they were for his sinuses.

Alexander later said someone in the complex had given him the pills and that they were "Ecstasy" and he had taken two about 10 minutes earlier, reports stated.

Police noticed Alexander's pupils were dilated and he was talking very fast, reports stated.

When police asked to search the room, Lundbergh handed an officer a ceramic pipe with suspected marijuana residue inside the bowl, reports stated.

Lundbergh said he brought the marijuana and he had more in the bathroom. He gave police a baggie with suspected marijuana, rolling paper, a lighter and a small baggie of a white powdery substance, reports stated.

According to reports, Lundbergh said that everything in the baggie was his, except for the white powdery substance.

Lundbergh was cited on suspicion of unlawful possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of narcotic drugs.

Alexander was cited on suspicion of possession and use of narcotic drugs.

They were both booked into the Pima County Jail.

According to reports, police later identified the white pills as Ecstasy and the white powdery substance as cocaine.
